Jamie Jamison remembers her early introduction to woad. She was on a road trip with her parents, stopping at a Stuckey's shop and seeing a tiny souvenir Navajo rug that illustrated where the natural dyes came from. She has her own now -- blues, greens and yellows, all grown from her yard. Yellow is easy. Even onion skins will make a usable yellow. Blue, however, is another story. For that she is growing woad, Isatis tinctoria , a member of the mustard family. Woad originated in southern Europe and western Asia.

Much of the post-tornado rubble has been removed from Joplin, Mo. But for the city's residents, a six-mile scar of house foundations and turned-up dirt serves as a raw and sorrowful reminder of the epic twister that killed 161 people and destroyed thousands of homes as it swept through around dinner time May 22. While the community struggles to rebuild, a flap is playing out on Facebook over a map created by the local tourism agency that points...

Tyler Perry was feeling bad Wednesday - as a person should after hurting a close friend. In this case, the friend was Oprah Winfrey, and the harm was far from intentional. "I FEEL SO BAD," the actor-director-writer-producer-whatever wrote on his Facebook page. "I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion," he explained. "Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke!" Tyler Perry broke Oprah!

Can a person's Facebook profile reveal what kind of employee he or she might be? The answer is yes, and with unnerving accuracy, according to a new paper published in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology. And if you are smugly thinking to yourself, "I've carefully wiped my Facebook page of any incriminating photos, comments and wall posts," - well, it turns out you may still not have hidden your true nature from future employers: On a rating scale that examines key personality attributes that indicate future job success, you might get rated high in conscientiousness and possibly low on extroversion.

The family of 23-year-old Micayla Medek went through an almost unimaginable emotional torture Friday. They knew she'd been wounded in the Aurora, Colo., movie theater shooting shortly after midnight Thursday; her friends who'd accompanied her to “The Dark Knight Rises” told them as much. But it took nearly 20 hours after the gunman killed 12 people and wounded 58 others to get the awful news. Late Friday, they learned that Cayla, as they called her, was one of 10 people who died in the movie theater.

Who owns your personal information - you or the business you share it with? It's a fundamental question that gets to the heart of whether existing privacy protections are too strict or not strict enough. It also addresses matters of accountability when data go astray, as was the case this week when a major credit card processing company said as many as 1.5 million card numbers may have been stolen by hackers. I wrote on Tuesday about the lack of adequate disclosure rules when people's privacy is violated.

Did you notice that Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook page updated as he rang the Nasdaq bell Friday morning? Well, that was an "epic" hack. It started with a lunchtime kibbitz and a Facebook post on Monday, Facebook software engineer David Garcia wrote on TechCrunch. Garcia said he posted on his Facebook page, "We should totally hack the button so it pushes an open graph action, 'Mark Rang the NASDAQ bell.'" The very first comment was an unequivocal sign of approval from the big guy himself: "It would be epic if you pulled that off. " With that, Garcia got to work searching for the solution.

The Lakers ...  bigger than the NBA? Of course it only feels that way if you live in L.A. The most-recent social media rankings -- and don't we all just love polls? -- are available for viewing on the website sportsfangraph.com. But a quick snapshot is a telling one. The Lakers' Twitter feed (@Lakers) has the most followers among NBA teams, as does its Facebook page, 2.7 million and 14.6 million, respectively. Orlando is No. 2, in terms of Twitter followers, with 1.08 million.
